Paris


I am using a tag from the beautiful collection
  "vintage Paris tags"
This was distressed with black soot distressed ink.
My background was made using  wilted violet and worn lipstick
distressed oxide inks. Smooshing onto my working glass area
 and spritzed  with a little bit of water then dragging my paper over it. 
Once dry I dabbed over the left over inks with the paper again.
Stamped the  background with a script stamp and distressed
the edges.  Of course I had to add an Eiffel tower die and flowers.

Challenge:
Crafter's Castle....Favourite distressed inking technique
Try it on Tuesday....Vintage
Tag Tuesday....Use a quote

The quote reads,
"The best things in life are Old, Loved and Rescued"

I also want to show you the lovely gift I received from Valerie
for my recent win at Tag Tuesday.
Thank you for these fabulous goodies...love them. ♥
